NASCAR welcomes a new market to the Cup Series on Sunday with the first Enjoy Illinois 300 presented by TicketSmarter at World Wide Technology Raceway. The 1.25-mile oval, located outside St. Louis (Madison, Illinois), is the only racetrack added to the 2022 Cup schedule.

The 15th race of the year will also be one of the shortest, a 240 lap event expected to last well under three hours. It’s quite a contrast to the longest race in NASCAR history last weekend, the 619.5-mile Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway which took five hours and 13 minutes to finish under the green.
